The Conservatives hold Worthing East & Shoreham.
This small constituency takes in the residential parts of East Worthing, industrial Shoreham-by-Sea and smaller outlying communities. There's a good deal of light industry in the area and Shoreham is the largest port between Dover and Portsmouth, serving the towns of Brighton, Hove and Worthing. Local government, tourism and the service sector are big employers.
Shoreham Airport, the oldest commercial airfield in the UK, has a 1936 Grade II listed Art Deco terminal building that has appeared in films including the Da Vinci Code. Like its neighbour, Worthing West, the constituency has a sizeable elderly population, who make up a fifth of the population, according to the 2011 Census, and it has a relatively high proportion of people in part time work.
In 2010 Conservative Tim Loughton won the seat with 48.5% of the vote, the Lib Dems were second on 25.5%, Labour got 16.7% and UKIP 6.2%.
